Busy week

A visit from Mike and Wayne

We were so happy that we had a chance to visit with Mike and Wayne while they were in town for a wedding! We met them Saturday night for a drink at Harry’s. As always, it was wonderful to see them and makes us wish we could see them more often. Hopefully that will be the case once we get to Juarez – just a short Southwest flight from El Paso to San Antonio!

This has been a busy week for us – I think we’ve had things to do every single night. Friday night we celebrated my last day on the passport task force at a party at a friend’s house. It was a fun evening – we got to meet some folks who aren’t in the Foreign Service, but who work on the “country desks” at the State Department. These people worked on various desks in Africa and they were very interesting to visit with.

The rest of the week was busy with a dinner out with friends going to Mexico; a dinner party at a friend’s house who is leaving this week for China; Scrabble night; and happy hour night. Last Sunday, we had some friends over for brunch and a coffee roasting demo.

Yesterday morning, John found a kitten in our hallway – she was so cute and looked almost just like Flavia as a kitten. She came in for a while to visit while the office called everyone in our building who has a cat. Fortunately, last night our neighbor got home and realized the kitten was missing, so all’s well that ends well. Noodle was not happy about having her visit! He continued to hiss at Flavia, long after the kitten was gone! Here’s a shot of the kitten – and a shot of Flavia with flowers, given to us by a friend.
